Akbar. AH 970?. Mint name off the flan. But in the early days of his reign, Akbar did not have control over a very large part of India. His empire basically extended only towards a part of Nothern India.

Maythem,
You have the Ilahi year wrong. Akbar ascended the throne in AH 963 and was only 7 years on the throne by AH 970. Even if one were to consider his accession from AH 962 as is seen on some coins, it would be just 8 years. Ilahi 36 would be AH 999.
Also, the early coins of Akbar do not show a Regnal Year.

Thank you Amit, it is my mis-reading; there is no " 36 ۳۶ " in the center of the second photo; I mis-read the 3 for the first letter of " Shah شاه " and the 6 for the end letter of Muhammad " D د ". ID now becomes:
Mughal, Jalal al-din Muhammad Akbar, AH 970, Kalima type, Silver Rupee, Mint?(AH 963–1014 /1556–1605 AD)
